What I… Carla from StyleDiary

Today I am interviewing Cape Town based fashion and beauty blogger, Carla, the lady behind StyleDiary a South African fashion blog. By day she designs and implements marketing strategies for her marketing agency, Twenty3Media.

Carla loves to travel and explore new places, read, shop and try new recipes. She has great taste in TV series and lists all my faves as her faves! She is also a new bride – Congrats Carla!

What I….


Hard work will pay off. If you believe you can do something and you’re willing to put in the effort, don’t let anyone tell you you won’t succeed. Also, surround yourself with people that love you, believe in you and support you, this is the best support network that anyone can ask for.


So many things! For starters my amazing soon-to-be husband Pieter. Also my family, my friends, my pet rabbit Tequila, red wine in winter and white wine in summer, traveling, baked cheese cake, pumpkin fritters, deep fried haloumi cheese, the little Italian restaurant close to our house, the quiet on the farm in Namibia, sushi, watching series in bed on a rainy day, reading, baking.


A random mix of books and magazines. I mostly read business books but I do enjoy a cheesy romantic novel. In terms of magazines I like Glamour, Marie Claire, and Allure. I don’t get to read as much as I want to but during holidays I make up for what I missed out during the year.


A BMW 6 series most definitely! If I can be picky, a convertible and not a coupé please 😉 One day I will drive one of these. On a serious note, if I was given one wish to be granted I would ask that cancer disappear off the face of the earth.


Mostly dresses, especially when it’s that typical hot and humid weather in Cape Town. In winter I love to layer, and I love to wear pretty coats and boots. I have a weakness for shoes and accessories, they really can make an outfit.


…in my life to have a happy balance include love, family, friends, lots of conversation over long meals, exercise, wine and a challenging work environment.

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
